Ode to Toy

Written by Carina DuMarce & Jay Hayden

What happens when a new toy joins the toy box? Bella the Ballerina and Teddy the Teddy Bear welcome Milo, a new Wooden Duck. They teach Milo classic games like Jacks, Hide and Seek, and many more. These three heroes move very differently from one another and must find creative ways to play together as they forge a friendship. In this interactive show for very young children, Milo and the audience learn that play is more fun when everyone is included.

FIRST STAGE provides a way to nurture creative thinking and imagination
while inspiring both children and their parents.

Introduce your child to the magic of theater through FIRST STAGE!

First Stage: A small stage for big imaginations

The Rose is proud to offer young theater-goers a unique opportunity to experience the theater arts. Our FIRST STAGE productions are perfect for preschoolers, children with special needs or sensory needs or others who desire a gentler, more interactive and personal performance.

Our FIRST STAGE productions feature:

  • Interactions with performers
  • A smaller theater space where kids are part of the action
  • Flexible seating in chairs, on the floor, on benches, etc.
  • A “shush-free” environment
  • Minimal periods of darkness or loud sounds
  • A whole lot of imagination and fun!

The Rose’s Hitchcock Stage (a smaller theater space located on our 4th floor), allows children to become completely absorbed in the theatrical experience. We encourage their interaction with the performers and invite your family to tear down the fourth wall and become a part of the performance.

First Stage Productions are ideal for:

Ages 1+

First-time theatergoers

Families wanting to try a performance experience

Children with sensory or other special needs
